5 Starter Adult Acoustic Drum Kits under £700 

Most people have had the urge to bang a drum kit and get there hands on some drum sticks. Playing the drums is simply FUN ! Whether your a seasoned drummer or just started out. Drumming  developes confidence, fitness and reduces stress.   If you want to give a drum kit a go then why not ? and see if you take to it. Starter/student drum kits are a great idea for someone who has always wanted to be the next great drummer.

  • Had tough day and need de-stress ?
  • Want to build confidence ?
  • Want to improve your fitness ?
  • If the answers are YES then let’s have some fun on a drum kit!

Drums can be very expensive so a good plan is to buy a cheaper kit to start. If they don’t like playing and give up, you can sell it and haven’t lost to much money. You don’t want to pay a fortune for a drum set only for it to be left in a wardrobe or the attic. If they want to continue you can upgrade to  electronic or acoustic drums.

How to choose a Starter Drum Kit if you are an adult/student first time player.

Choosing the best drum kit can be difficult so keep it simple. Choose a kit to suit your budget, you like the look of and has everything included, drums, stands and cymbals. I put together a list of 5 starter drum kits suitable for adults and students.

The key factors in choosing a drum kit are the size off the drums and build quality. Drums don’t have to be big to sound loud, it’s the way you hit them. A smaller 20″ bass drum size and smaller toms are a great choice, they also take up less space.

Included with all the drum kit is …

These starter drum kits have everything you need to get started, the drums, pedals, stool, sticks and cymbals. Simple set them up and play !

NB: With the Ludwig Breakbeats drum kit you will have to buy stands, cymbals and stool separately. I wanted to include this kit because it’s a wonderful drum kit.
